About ISIR

The Institut des Systèmes Intelligents et de Robotique (ISIR) is hosted by the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC). ISIR is a major research unit and a major player in the engineering teaching and research department of UPMC. ISIR is a multidisciplinary laboratory with activities in complex mechanical systems, systems and control, and signal and image processing. ISIR hosts three divisions: Interactive Systems, Perception and Human Movement, and Integrated Mobile and Autonomous Systems. The Institute has ten full professors, twenty associate professors and about sixty graduate students.

The Micro & Nano Robotics Group (MICROB)

The Micro & Nano Robotics Group of ISIR involved in the project is specialised in manipulation and characterisation techniques at the nanoscale and develops scientific instruments for measurement, analysis, assembly and characterisation as well as human interfaces. The group hosts the CNRS National Nanorobotics Platform and disposes of several in-­‐house developed nanomanipulation and characterization instruments based on scanning electron microscopy, digital holographic microscopy and optical tweezers.
